Every real estate transaction is unique in its challenges and opportunities, so choosing a Realtor with industry-wide perspective and relevant life experience can help smooth the bumps on the path to finding your dream house. My diverse background and business experience over the years has allowed me to cultivate my keen negotiation skills. (I am a Certified Negotiation Expert –CNE®). These skills combined with my current market knowledge, advertising acumen, and contract and financial expertise provides the groundwork for every step of the process.
Prior to joining Berkshire Hathaway, (and Colwell Banker prior to that) I was a Senior Mortgage Consultant for more than 10 years, forming strong relationships and business acuity to help navigate the escrow process. I also enjoyed a long run as an Editor at Condé Nast Publications in New York and Los Angeles, a fast-paced, highly disciplined role that still fuels my passion for predicting, interpreting and acting on trends in the marketplace.
Through it all, I’ve held my Realtor license, participating in numerous personal and professional transactions. Most importantly, I built a home and family with my husband and two sons in the Montecito foothills, a 25-year ongoing adventure that stirs its own special insights about neighborhoods, schools, people, and a love of the Santa Barbara area.
I travel all over the world and still, every time I return to Santa Barbara, I’m thrilled to be home.
